Pine Cone Chandelier

Hand forged by
Potter Art Metal Studios of Dallas.
©All Rights Reserved.

We have so many interior designers and clients alike, especially in the Colorado area, looking for "something elegant, yet rustic and outdoorsy instead of cheap and cheesy" for their beautiful homes and cottages.

I have designed this beautiful hand wrought iron chandelier, adorned with pine cones and needles, with these individuals in mind.

The texture on the branches is skillfully executed for a very life-like appearance.  Each pine cone and needle is individually forged and therefor no one is like the other.  As in nature, some are closed, partially and totally open.  We have tried to capture the exquisite feeling of outdoor wide open spaces and bring it inside, where you feel the luxurious and cozy sense of a well designed and executed space.

Potter Art Metal Studios designs and hand forges anything you can dream of:

We Wish You All A Happy New Year!

Getting ready for Gate Installation

It was such a pleasure designing these drive gates; can't wait to see them up.  The guys worked really hard forging each scroll and knocker, each decorative hinge, down to the smallest details like the hammer heads.  And this is only one of the two, custom designed and built, beautiful wrought iron gates crowning the entrance of a gorgeous Coppel home.  If you like this style, check out Kelli Otey; she's the interior designer for the owners.
The gates are getting hung!  Now the columns have to be finished out and we'll get our lights put up on the fronts of them.  A few touchups, adjustments, the sand will be swept away to reveal the lovely cobblestone driveway and everything will look so beautiful.

Beautiful Solid Brass Coffee Table

One of our clients wanted a lovely, delicate, coffee table base.  This is the design I put together for her and she fell in love with it right away.  We custom built the table base our of solid brass, which has a very wonderful translucent quality to it; especially when antiqued.  Joan decided on glass for the top of the base; it was the perfect touch for the room.
